1960s CRESTA Chiffon Dress in Brown and White

This gorgeous dress is an original 1960s chiffon dress made by CRESTA and is very sheer particularly on the sleeves which can be seen in pic three and above the bust. The dress is in excellent condition and is lined at the yoke with a flesh coloured silk in a V shape and from the waist to the hem it is lined in black silk. This dress is beautifully made with zip. The collar is a roll neck with three tiny hook and eyes. In my photographs I have used a full tulle petticoat which is not included in the sale and in fact is a little long for the dress and has probably bulked it out a little more than it would be if it was on the right sized person. The dress has been clipped on to my dummy which is very small, the dress is 14 UK and has belt loops for you to add your belt of choice which is not supplied and would finish the look of the dress.

ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS

Bust 36 inches (92 cms)
Waist  30 inches  (76 cms)
Length 39 inches  (99 cms)

1960s Emerald Green Tent Dress in Wool

This unique dress is making a statement and is so unusual. I believe the dress has been home made in the 1960s and would be suitable for maternity too. The dress is fully lined has a good weight to it and is in great condition with a V neck. I can see this dressed up for that special occasion with a large brimmed hat in black or white or even emerald green and a pair of matching long close fitting gloves. For a more casual look you could add a pair of 60s boots and a pair of large clip on ear rings.
